its offical....MWP has been waived
Well the word is out that he wants to be a Knick, so lets hope it goes through smoothly. What would happen if someone picks him up anyway??? Would he have to cry and scream to get released? or would he have to retire? and if he did retire how soon could he come out of retirement? sorry for all the questions...
Metta is pretty psycho. He says something different every day. I know his dad hopes he signs with us. He loves the Knicks and always did - said it on a radio show i saw recently. Only issue i'm hearing is he doesn't want to up his kids and disrupt their lives as they live near LA. My guess if he doesn't sign with us, he may sign with the Clippers or a team near LA
If he retires he has to wait a year before he can apply to come back. The year wait rule was made to prevent a player who doesn't want to play for a certain team, retires and then comes back to play for another team.

48 hours... if no other team claims him in 48 hours, he becomes free agent and Knicks can sign him...
otherwise, Knicks have no chance...
"Teams with room under the salary cap have 48 hours to put in a claim on World Peace.
If no team with cap space tries to claim World Peace, he becomes an unrestricted free agent.
The Knicks, according to a league source, will have interest in World Peace if he makes it through waivers."
there's over a dozen teams right now with cap space who can bid on MWP,
even more if they make cuts within the next 48 hours...
the Knicks chance of signing MWP is slim as a pubic hair... 48 hours...
MWP and JR Smith on the same team???
i bet the media is salivating at the potential here. "bash bro's throwin' bo's!" and etc.
Could they co-exist? how would MWP rub Melo? Where does this leave Amar'e/TC/Bargni minutes? lot of questions but he's probably the biggest upside 'peace' out there that we could get. (see what i did there?) I don't think many teams are willing to upset the locker room balance for him. Looking at what happened with Lamar Odom after he left the lakers i think teams are weary of guys that performed well but don't want to leave big market clubs. I think that leaves Knicks, the Nyets, and the Clippers in the true running for him. after AK signed with the nyets i don't think they can make a play for him and I don't know the clips situation cap wise but i don't think they can claim him right now.... Who else would/could risk it?
I've said all along Dallas biggest threat to grab him and they have just let it be known they will not bid

I'm just going to put this out there after the Nets signed AK47 but could he go to the Nets to come home to NY.
